Student Visa And OSHC

Student Visa

All international students studying in Australia must have a valid student visa. Students may apply for a visa themselves, or use the services of an authorised overseas agent of RTO. <insert link to agent list>

More information on student visas can be found on the Department of Home Affairs website <insert link: http://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/trav/stud> and on the Study in Australia website. <insert link: http://www.studyinaustralia.gov.au/global/apply-to-study/visas >

The key conditions that all students need to fulfill in order to maintain their Student Visa include:

  • Students must remain enrolled in a registered course that matches the level of study indicated on the visa
  • Students must maintain satisfactory course progress
  • Students must keep course providers updated on their address and contact details
  • Students must maintain adequate Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) for the entire duration of their visa

Health Insurance-OSHC

Health cover for international students is called Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC). It helps you pay for medical or hospital care they may need while they are studying in Australia; it will also contribute towards the cost of most prescription medicines and an ambulance in an emergency.

As part of their Student Visa conditions, all international students are required to have OSHC for themselves (and any partner/ spouse/ family travelling with them) for the duration of their Student Visa. OSHC must be organised before the student arrives in Australia.

Exceptions: You do not need OSHC if you are:

  • a Norwegian student covered by the Norwegian National Insurance Scheme
  • a Swedish student covered by Kammarkollegiet
  • a Belgian student covered under the Reciprocal Health Care Agreement with Australia.

If you are studying at more than one educational provider and both are arranging OSHC, you will have to ensure that there is no gap between policies. This means that as one policy expires the next commences immediately.

If you have a child born after your arrival in Australia, and you only have a single OSHC policy you must change that to a family policy. If family members join you after your arrival in Australia they will have to demonstrate that they have an OSHC policy for the duration of their visas.

Tuition Protection Service (TPS)

The Tuition Protection Service (TPS) is an initiative of the Australian Government to assist international students whose education providers are unable to fully deliver their course of study. The TPS ensures that international students are able to either:

  1. complete their studies in another course or with another education provider or
  2. receive a refund of their unspent tuition fees.

You can find more details at https://tps.gov.au/StaticContent/Get/StudentInformation.

 

Welfare arrangement for student under 18

International students under 18 years of age must demonstrate that they have adequate welfare arrangements in place before they can be granted a student visa. The options are:

  1. Nominate a parent / legal custodian or a relative over 21 years to be your student guardian. The Department of Home Affairs (DHA) will assess this arrangement, or
  2. Arrange for TME to approve your welfare arrangements in accordance with the TME approved guidelines for acceptable welfare and accommodation arrangements. TME will issue a Confirmation of Appropriate Accommodation and Welfare (CAAW) letter and the nominated start date and end date of your welfare arrangements.

Information about the Department of Home Affairs welfare requirements for under 18 student visa applicants can be found on their website.

TME will only approve welfare arrangements if it meets our guidelines. Students must have an agreement with one of the TME approved caregiver services and homestay arranged through Student Accommodation Services. Students cannot enter Australia before the commencement of welfare arrangements. This is a student visa condition.

Students must stay in approved accommodation and have care arrangements in place until they turn 18, including any period of non-enrolment. Any changes to welfare arrangements must be approved by TME.
